America, Don't Ever Apologize for Your Valuess

(Wall Street Journal) - British Prime Minister Tony Blair (Address to a joint session of Congress Thursday) We know there are states in the Middle East now actively funding and helping people who regard it as God's will in the act of suicide to take as many innocent lives with them on their way to God's judgment. Some of these states are desperately trying to acquire nuclear weapons. Can we be sure that terrorism and weapons of mass destruction will join together? If we are wrong, we will have destroyed a threat that, at its least, is responsible for inhuman carnage and suffering. But if we are right, and we do not act, then we will have hesitated in the face of this menace when we should have given leadership. That is something history will not forgive. We must never compromise the security of the state of Israel. The state of Israel should be recognized by the entire Arab world, and the vile propaganda used to indoctrinate children not just against Israel but against Jews must cease. You cannot teach people hate and then ask them to practice peace.
